Daraa - SMART

Dozens of former Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters in the Daraa and al-Suwayda governorates, Southern Syria, head toward Central and Northern Syria to support the Syrian government in fighting the opposition factions and Islamist battalions.

The FSA is a military gathering founded in July 2011 by dissident officers of the Syrian loyalist forces to protest the violence against and killing of peaceful demonstrators. It calls itself "the military wing of the Syrian revolution" and aims to overthrow the Syrian regime. Its fighters are deployed in most of the Syrian governorates.

On Thursday, a source said that two days ago, former Shabab al-Sunnah fighters in al-Suwayda and the city of Bosra al-Sham, Daraa, who signed settlement agreements with the Syrian government, headed with its forces to Northern Hama and Western Latakia. Russian forces deployed the fighters to the frontline to fight the FSA and Islamist battalions.

A local activist said that he saw a military convoy heading down the Damascus-Daraa highway. The convoy includes dozens of former FSA fighters and armored vehicles. The activist stated that one of the fighters in the convoy told him that they will go to Idlib to fight against the factions.

On Wednesday, FSA factions observed that reinforcements to the Syrian government forces and loyalist militias arrived in Northern Syria. The FSA urged their fighters to raise the alert to repel them, amid warnings of a military operation by the Syrian government in the area under the cover of the winter weather conditions.

Mustafa Bakro, the spokesperson for the FSA's Jaysh al-Ezza, stated that the Syrian government forces transferred thousands of their members and Iranian militias to the frontline in the governorates of Idlib, Aleppo, Hama and Latakia.

Hundreds of people from the Daraa governorate and former FSA fighters joined the Syrian government forces ranks after an agreement with the opposition factions. The agreement required the handover of weapons, a ceasefire and the evacuation of those who rejected the settlement to Northern Syria.
